Don't think there is anything really built in. The usual hooks/options  
for getting some sort of custom behavior in ahead of a job will apply:

  - qsub wrapper that intercepts job submission
  - starter method with special exit code
  - queue level prolog that rejects unauthorized paths with special  
exit code

One other slightly evil method that may or may not work ...

- Use the sge_aliases facility to map "/home" to some nonsense path  
that will guarantee a job failure. Not practical if it tosses a queue  
instance into error state E though but certainly evil!
